Optional Practical Training (OPT) Workshop

This workshop is designed for students completing their classes for graduation in the Spring 2018 semesters.

Optional Practical Training (OPT) is temporary (usually 1 year) work authorization for international students on F-1 visas who have just completed a degree (BA, MA or PhD). The employment ("training") must be directly related to your major. You may apply for OPT even if you do not yet have a job offer.
